Pair of wonderfully detailed maps from a German edition of Prevost's l'Histoire Generale des Voyages. First (13 x 8") covers the Yucatan Peninsula and northern Central America. Guatemala is limited to a narrow strip along the Pacific coast and El Salvador has yet to be carved out of Honduras. Second (11.5 x 7.8") continues through Central America to the Gulf of Michel and Darien. The maps locate primary harbors, shoals, numerous villages and missions and are decorated with title cartouche.
Faint foxing in blank margins.
